Adelaide Oval Tours and Museums : Explore Adelaide Oval
Adelaide Oval and the environment The Oval is controlled by a building management system that ensures maximum efficiency by controlling lights, air-conditioning, blinds, refrigeration units and escalators. The system also alerts staff to any faults, allowing timely repairs and minimising potential waste. There is a Sustainability Management Plan in place to ensure the use of renewable and recyclable resources, while minimising energy and water use, as well as waste generation. To support this plan, water efficient hydraulic designs included a designated main from the Glenelg Adelaide Pipeline (GAP) that supplies the stadium toilet facilities and oval irrigation with recycled water. The toilet facilities are fitted with electronic timed tap ware and hands free tap ware. This system used 12.8 million litres of water during the qualifying period, water that would otherwise have come from the potable mains supply. A purpose designed automatic urinal flushing system is designed to minimise the volume of water used during an event by only operating while areas are occupied and staggering the flushing across the urinals. Our energy efficient operable window system automatically shuts off air-conditioning in large spaces when open. Lighting incorporates presence detection to ensure lighting is not left on when areas are not occupied. The lighting will turn on with movement, and the ‘lighting off sequence’ will occur once 20 minutes have elapsed without the detection of movement. Additionally the stadium is setup with functional zones which are disabled/enabled dependent on event requirements ensuring that only lighting and equipment required for events are utilised. Adelaide Oval as a whole recycles in excess of 500,000 cans and bottles per year. We have 100 x 120-litre can and bottle bins and 300 x 240-litre bins for recycling only. Waste is also sorted at staff desks, using boxes to collect recyclables. We are undertaking a green waste initiative, where all biodegradable products will go in compost or mulch, rather than general waste. How are the funds loaned to complete the redevelopment being paid back? The SA Government funded the project with the aim of bringing AFL football and the significant AFL business back to the city. The economic flow on effects to the city of Adelaide and wider SA community are significant, estimated to be in excess of $330m in 2014/2015. AOSMA pays $1m per year to the State Government which is invested into other sports (non-football and cricket). It is also responsible for contributing approximately $3m each year to a long term sinking fund for future asset replacement at Adelaide Oval.
